The presence of boats, or the prahu, in Indonesia is as old as human existence in the Archipelago. When caves inhabited by early humans, boats had become a part of their lives. Some of those caves perpetuate images of pre-historic boats that may had been used by those who painted them, or perhaps, by their ancestors several prior generations, the Australo-Melanesian who migrated from the Sundaland to the Wallacea i.e. the islands beyond in search of new livelihood. It is sufficient to mention, among many, a report on boat painting in caves of the Lesser Kei Island in eastern Indonesia. Reproduction of the cave imprint presented by Intan (1998) shows the boat as of dugout with additional structure and projecting bows. This painting resembles the boat painting with pictures of man, animal and the sun along with pictures of long boats called kora-kora found in East Timor reported by Ruy Cinatti in 1963. Obvious from those cave paintings that all boats were single bodied dugout canoe without outrigger, although some of them show additional construction for poles and sails or other strenghtening structures.
